One-Line Bio

I'm a writer, agitator, educator, editor, and book artist living in New York City.


I’ve been any number of things in my life—student, servant of physicists, word wrangler, exploited white collar higher educator, New York City’s secret lover, union activist, accused lesbian, novelist, vagabond, believer in the apocalypse—but through all of that, I’ve been a poet. No matter what else I do or think or believe or what labels I wear, I know that poems are the best single delivery system of emotional bombs, the kind that blow off the masks we all hide behind, if only for a moment, and only to ourselves.
